We had a fantastic night at the IGA Big Awards this August! Our teams were finalists for three categories – the Communication Award, the Customer Service Award and the Independent Garage of the Year Award. Overall, there were more than 1,200 garages that entered the competition so this was already a huge achievement for us.
Unfortunately, we didn’t come first place in any of these but we did win highly commended in the Independent Garage of the Year which we are super proud of.
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we seemed to forget to take any photos of the night. However, we know how much everyone loves to see what we’ve been up to, so here are some of the night’s highlights.
Unfortunately, Gemma had popped to the loo whilst we had this photo… Sorry, Gemma!
The lovely ladies of CCM pose with the complimentary prosecco which was much appreciated! From left to right, Sharon from Ewhurst, Hannah and Amanda from Gatwick and Gemma of Cranleigh.
The CCM owners Stuart and Barry jump in for another photo op before the awards ceremony begins.
Some of the CCM ladies pose with Mark Durden-Smith who was hosting the awards show. We made a friend from another garage, but we can’t remember his name… Sorry mystery man!
We may not have ‘technically’ been winners, but Barry and Simon thought it was worthwhile getting on stage for another photo op. Even if it was a little cheeky of them!
The effects of the alcohol took a hold of Gemma and Hannah who stormed the stage to make a speech. Luckily, the mics were turned off by this point!
Gemma, Stuart and Nathan strike a pose with the official BIG Awards sign.
The last photo of the night with Hannah being pestered by a very mumbly drunk man who she couldn’t quite hear and Simon looking pretty tired.
All in all, another fabulous night out for some of the CCM team. Roll on next August when we hopefully get to do it all again! 😀 The official photos will be released on the IGA website soon so we’ll be sharing those once they come out too.
